How Our Team Repairs Water Damaged Wood Floors
When water enters your home, it doesn’t only stay on the surface. Water that isn’t absorbed by the wood, seeps into the subflooring that’s underneath your hardwood floors.
When our team arrives at your Dallas/Fort Worth property the first thing we'll do is provide you with a free water damage estimate and visual inspection. Using infrared cameras and moisture meters, our restoration team is able to detect water hiding underneath floorboards. With this technology, we can accurately determine the amount of moisture and ensure we've extracted every drop of water during the restoration process.

Types Of Wood Floor Water Damage We Can Fix:
If your wood floors have already suffered water damage, such a cupping or buckling, we’ll repair and restore your wood floors back to normal.
Cupping occurs when the underside of your hardwood floor absorbs more moisture than the surface. This moisture imbalance causes the edges of your wood floor to elevate higher above the center. Because of this, your floor looks wavy and no longer looks flat. Regent Restoration can repair your damaged floors and remove the moisture that causes cupping in the first place.
This is the most extensive kind of water damage to a wood floor and usually, happens after a home flood. Buckling occurs when the wood floor lifts several inches up from the subfloor. If remediate action is taken straightaway, repair is possible. Regent Restoration can quickly extract any standing water, stabilize the moisture in your floorboards, and repair your hardwood floor.
Wet Wood Floors Can Cause Mold To Grow
Do you know what water attracts? Mold. If your water damaged wood floor is left untreated, mold can grow. Mold will cause your wood floor to deteriorate, and more importantly, can affect the air quality of your home. Mold causes allergies and irritations in those who are sensitive to it, but even if you aren't allergic to it, prolonged exposure to mold can cause respiratory problems.
Regent Restoration provides emergency water damage services, including wood floor drying, which can prevent you from having to spend money on mold removal services.
Our water damage specialists will extract moisture from the surface and beneath your wet wood flooring. We'll then restore the humidity levels and spray a microbial spray to stop the growth of mold.
